This scene is looking west, up Cascade Canyon, from Inspiration Point in Grand Teton National Park.


Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park protects spectacular mountain scenery and a diverse collection of wildlife. The central feature of the park – the Teton Range — is a 40-mile-long mountain front rising from the valley floor some 6,000 feet. The towering Tetons were formed from earthquakes that occurred over the past 13 million years along a fault line. The jagged range includes its signature peak – Grand Teton, 13,770 feet (4,198 m) – and at least twelve pinnacles over 12,000 feet (3,658 m). Seven morainal lakes adorn the base of the range, and more than 100 alpine lakes dot the backcountry.

Wonderful landscape Evelynn! This mountains are really great! Nice POV, lights, colours and DOF. TFS!

This is beautiful Evelynn, the exposure really makes it. Once again a refreshing view and breathtaking at the same time. :)

Wow very dramatic shot Evelynn! I love how the mountains and the clouds almost seem to be facing each other for lofty dominance of the sky.

Hi Evelynn,
Just time for a quick visit.

Magnificent! Awesome!
The realm of the gods!
This is quite a powerful scenery, Evelynn.
Everything comes across as massive: the mountains, the clouds.
Expert management of lights and shadows to accentuate the visual impact.
Congratulations on a spectacular capture. TFS. : )

Wooaaaww Evelynn, this is fabulous!
The light, the depht, the sharpness, the height of the mountains, the perfect composition...The clouds standing behind the mountains on the right: An incredible 3D effect. UNIQUE!
Congratulation!! This is a dream photograph.deserves 10 points not 2

This scene is Stunning Evelynn! Wow is at first all I can think of to say. I love the looming clouds on the right, inspiration point for sure, it makes me want to go and hike around the bend to see what other wonderful surprises can be seen. What a breathtaking view, well captured.

Magnificent mountain composition...
have a nice w end

Wow. I love the scene to begin with. The composition with the three angles (mountains on the left, mountains on the right, and clouds on the right) is really pleasing.
Did you really shoot this with your old camera, or the new one with a polarizing filter?

Hi Evelynn
Not much to say that hasn't already been said. Spectacular scene and the frontal clouds provide additional drama. Makes it seem kind of flat around here. Regards.

you managed to sneak this one in whilst I was on holiday, I don't usually miss mountain scenes like this.

I love the DOF and the very distinct layers to the picture topped off with those wonderful teeth ... mountain tops... that cloud on the right nicely balances the picture adding some symmentry to the photo.


Hey Evelynn, Long time since we last spoke. Life got rather busy on my end. Really nice shot here. Great color and nice composition. Hope to get some more time to look at your other new shots! I'm also hoping to get some more of mine posted soon. Keep on shooting! TFS!

Hello Evelynn,
I love really all your landscapes!!! me which am fan of mountain, this one is so impressive! and so splendid!
Thank you,
has soon,

I love these mountains... and the clouds coming from the right...
I like the three diagonal lines:
-foreground mountains
-background mountains
that lead the eye again and again to the center of the picture.
if only I was there instead that in my office...
